Having made reservations early in the week, specificly requesting to be seated on the terrace, we were told upon arrival that there was no more space outside because "everyone had asked to sit outside". No airconditioning inside and a wobbly table made for a rather uncomfortable first hour of our visit. On our 2 previous visits the food and service... More

I think we have now found our place to be (eat) in Leuven. The tapas as well as the traditional dishes were delicious. We will certainly go back.

Had my birthday dinner here and we all (n=4) enjoyed the great food. Huge variety in exquisite tastes and some nice wines too. Very friendly service and accomodating to change an order really last minute due to food allergy. Just had a great time. Thanks.

My girlfriend and I go to the Zarza about 1 to 2 times a year. We typically take a 5 course menu with paired wine and we've never been disappointed by the quality of either the food of the wines. By fine dining standards, the service can be a bit sloppy sometimes, but that's more nitpicking than anything else, and... More

I went here with colleagues for a lunch. We had the 3 course menu, which was very nice. After the main meal, I was however still hungry. The portions are rather small but luckily, the dessert was big enough. The food is quite classic, but prepared in a unique way and well presented. Be sure to take a coffee or... More

Cosy and calm environment where your palette can really enjoy the numerous tastes and textures. Some dishes are so different and surprising that you know it is a one off. The set of starters is a voyage through different cultures. Before and in between courses, we got even more tasters. No More space in our stomac for a desert though...... More
